The present study was conducted with the objective of examining the effect of wortmanin, a specific PI 3-kinase inhibitor, on the kinetic of GVBD, and on the activities of the maturation-promoting factor (MPF) and mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase during bovine oocyte maturation. The time sequence for GVBD was not different between oocytes cultured(More)
In this study 2 phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI 3-kinase)-specific inhibitors, wortmannin and 2-[4-Morpholinyl]-8-phenyl-4H-1-benzopyran-4-one (LY294002), were used to investigate whether PI 3-kinase is involved in the signal transduction that leads to bovine oocyte maturation. Bovine follicular oocytes were cultured in vitro for 24 h in a basic medium(More)
